Title: Real-time metocean sensor arrays

Abstract

A real-time metocean sensor array system may include a one or more floating instruments each including geolocation capabilities and connected to a satellite communication network. In some examples, the floating instruments may further include an omnidirectional hydrophone. Motion and acoustical data gathered by the instruments may be converted by onboard processing logic into wave, current, and/or wind-related observations that may be communicated in real time and analyzed via a cloud-based system.
